Bad Boy Records' Diddy knows black excellence when he sees it. The hip-hop icon has hit up social media to perfectly describe Marvel Studios' Black Panther dominating the box office once again with record-setting sales.
Puff Daddy went to Instagram Sunday (February 25) to celebrate Black Panther easily hitting the $700 million mark in less than just over a week.

In its second week, the must-see movie easily banked around $108 million at the box office.
"Black Panther" becomes only the fourth film ever to cross $100 million in its second weekend, joining "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "Jurassic World," and "The Avengers." It is the second highest second weekend for a film behind only "Force Awakens." "Black Panther" has also crossed the $700 million mark globally in just two weekends of release and will cross $400 million domestically on Sunday, its 10th day of release. The film has yet to open in China or Japan. (CNN)
Recently, Top Dawg Entertainment's Kendrick Lamar revealed his interest in playing a key role when Black Panther 2 goes into production.
In a new interview with BBC Radio 1 — following his fiery BRITs performance — host Clara Amfo asked Kendrick about the possibility of landing a cameo role in the next Black Panther flick. “Come on, I got to now!” the rapper responded, adding that he’d love to portray a multi-layered antagonist like Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger. “I really enjoy Killmonger’s character, just off the simple fact that he was a villain but he came with some real [talk]. … He was a villain but he was loved and misunderstood. So if I could, I’d play a Killmonger for sure.” (MTV)
After its first 96 hours, Black Panther turned into one of the biggest movie openings - ever.
Overall, Black Panther generated the fifth largest opening weekend of all-time (Friday-to-Sunday) behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248M), Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220M), Jurassic World ($208.8M), and The Avengers ($207.4M). That is amazing company. The much anticipated PG-13 super hero film was expected to be huge, but the results actually flew higher once movie fans had the chance to start coming out. The four-day average was a gargantuan $58,458 from 4,020 locations. (Rotten Tomatoes)
